What's Happening

Superintendent's Message

We are off to a great start for the 2014-15 school year here at Grant Park School District #6!

The summer months were extremely productive, as we completed several projects to enhance the safety and appearance of our facilities.  During those busy months, we repaved the elementary circle drive, installed new curbing outside of our high school, resurfaced areas of our high school parking lot, repaired several areas of sidewalk, installed interior cameras in our MS/HS, and finished a state of the art Fitness Facility (located in our HS).  Our Fitness Facility is scheduled to be open to the public beginning October 1st from 5:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. Many of the above-mentioned projects were completed and paid for by securing state matching grant funds.  

We continue to strive for excellence in everything we do, both inside the classroom and the extracurricular arena.  Without doubt, our staff and administration have high expectations that focus on enhancing student achievement levels.  I encourage you to monitor your child's assessments through our parent portal and communicate with the teaching staff regarding student progress.   Of course, we hope to see all of our parents/guardians at PT Conferences, scheduled for October 23rd (p.m.) and October 24th (a.m.).  

The students are back in a routine, representing our school in great fashion on a daily basis.   Please check our events calendar, as we welcome the community to our school system to witness the accomplishments and performances of our student body.  In other words... It is Great to be a Dragon these Days!
